    lol we didn't know what he was talking about before because he just edited his post. Yea, I think some ppl are working on such a thing a modmyifone. They already got use a medciclopedia and a drug information dicts for wedict. They are trying to port something like what you are saying for the iphone. I think he wants the program to be easily searchable though. If someone is dieing right in front of you, you have no time to scroll around looking for the correct chapter of your pdf.

    Espacially when there is only one PDF viewer available that needs many improvements.

    That is right but having something is better than nothing. Besides sometimes first aids are just a few pages including impotant tips. For example sometimes putting a blanket on a person can help a lot and this is mentioned in First Aids documents. Some stuff you shouldn't do which are very important and this will be only half page.

    Info:
    In US , they cannot sue you even you injured them when you do the first aid treatment. But you must be a qualified/certified in first aid.

    Example: heart attack
    If you are a certified in first aid and you do the procedure on giving the CPR. then accidentally you broke their ribs, they CANNOT sue you for this.
    Reason: You can justified that they can live with a broken ribs rather than no breathing at all.

    additional info. Unless they are in DNR . then they can sue you when you revive them :p .

    NO! We need to encourage people to NOT be afraid of legal actions and act when needed.

    There is a good samaritan policy in the USA. If you help someone who is in need, you are protected.

    Please don't hesitate - act.


    The ER docs always say for CPR - what's the worst you can do, they are already dead and you are trying to bring them back to life.

    I think you'd even be protected with DNR. DNR is for hospitals, etc - not samaritans who have no idea.

    I think your life-guard incident is just another problem that would never stand in court. The key was "tried" to sue - there is no way that would stand IMO.

    no, if you are not certified and if you save someone in the US, you could be sued for almost any reason because you are not certified.

    Nope DNR is not protected on sue. Thats their will. It's up to the jury and how you explain to them that you're just trying to revive the person but no idea that he/she is in DNR request.
